You know The Second City by the many famous faces you see on TV, from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, to Mike Meyers, Steve Carell, and Dan Ackroyd. Now, meet the next generation of comedy greatness when The Second City’s Blue Company brings ‘Made in America: Some Assembly Required’ to Center for Performing Arts at Governors State University on October 6 at 8 p.m.

A certified American comedy institution since 1959, The Second City’s laughs are 100% USA-made in this latest take on our great, big dysfunctional nation! The lauded company is sending satire down the conveyor belt and celebrating what makes us all tick in a hilarious revue that will leave you breathlessly ready to face the future…and all its loose screws.

Fresh, fast and always spectacularly funny​,​ The Second City is celebrating nearly sixty years of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest.

“We have a fresh new cast that really represents what a new America looks like. They’ve taken old material that was politically topical in the last century and made it work for a new political climate pushing the point that history tends to be cyclical, and this is ripe for humor and satire,” says Molly Todd Madison, Director of The Second City’s National Touring Company.

No topic is off limits. This cast of six believes in equal opportunity, so audience be warned, you are not immune. Political aficionados will be pleased to see that no sides are taken, and the cast offers a fearless and witty point-of-view. From race and gender, to political sex scandals and the cyclical nature of the beast, audience members will leave with a renewed sense of optimism.
